Rectify, SundanceTV's first scripted show and breakout hit, will end this fall with its fourth season, the network announced Friday. The cult hit, a 2015 Peabody Award winner, stars Aden Young as Daniel Holden, a man released from prison after serving nearly 20 years on death row.

"There is no perfect 'end' for this story nor for these characters," series creator Ray McKinnon said in a statement. "They will continue to live on. We just won't document them any longer. And the timing of this 'non-end' end feels exactly right. SundanceTV has been a dream to work with on this journey; I am so grateful to have been allowed the freedom to tell the tale I wanted to tell in the way I felt it should be told with the mad and beautiful collaborators who joined me on the ride."

Returning winter shows: where we left off

No word on how the series might conclude, but AMC Networks President and General Manager Charlie Collier teased a potential whopper of an ending. "We're looking forward to giving Rectify the send-off it deserves," he said.
